What is carpal tunnel?

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful ailment of the wrist and hand caused by compression of the median nerve in the carpal tunnel of your hand. This nerve gives feeling to your thumb, middle, index, and ring finger, and when the tissue surrounding it narrows, the pressure causes it to inflame. People who make repetitive motions all day long are prone to this injury, such as people who type and use computers for many hours every day, assembly-line workers, check-out-line technicians, musicians, carpenters, and auto mechanics.

What are some symptoms of carpal tunnel?

  • Pain and numbness that interrupts sleep at night
  • "Pins and needles" feeling in the fingers
  • Weakness of the hand
  • Difficulty making a fist or operating small objects
  • Swollen feeling in the fingers
  • Tingling or burning in the thumb, middle, index, and ring finger, or pain that moves up the arm to the elbow
  • Difficulty holding small objects

The median nerve is vital to the proper function of your wrist and hand. The effects of carpal tunnel injuries can impair your ability to perform everyday tasks and can prevent you from working. At Malter Law Corporation, our knowledgeable Southern California applicants' attorney is available 24/7 to answer your questions and start building your case.

Carpal tunnel injuries can be prevented with adequate safety measures. Wearing splints, resting your hands throughout the day, using nonsteroidal-anti-inflammatory (NSAID) drugs, and undergoing occupational therapy to loosen the tendons in your hands can help treat and prevent this syndrome. If you sustained a carpal tunnel injury because of your occupation, you are entitled to compensation.

With more than 40 years of experience, we can help you receive the compensation you need. Our Board Certified Workers' Comp Specialists are friendly, and you can expect personal and efficient service.
